August Faves

The Minnesota State Fair has started which means it’s almost the end of summer! Before August is over, let’s take a look at some of my favorite things from this month.

Prospero’s War series by Jaye Well


I don’t read a ton of urban fantasy but when I saw this in the RBDigital audiobook app, I decided to give it a shot. I loved it and I’ve almost finished books two and three in August! Of course, it looks like I’ll have to find a non-audio version of book four because my library doesn’t have it in audiobook form.

Celestial Seasonings Sleepytime Tea


Lately, I’ve been trying to not have coffee except for breakfast because I’ve found that it’s really affecting my sleep. In the past, I’ve taken melatonin to help with my sleep but I’m also trying to cut that out too so I wanted to find something else to help me wind down. Enter Sleepytime Tea from Celestial Seasonings. It’s the perfect thing to wind me down before bed and it’s become a nightly ritual (that sometime Mike joins me in too).

State Parks


Since getting our Minnesota state park sticker back in June, I’ve really wanted to visit some of the state parks around us. There’s several within an hour or so drive but we’ve been so busy that we haven't’ had the time. But this month I had the time to visit two in one weekend! I took Vinnie on a walk at Fort Snelling and then did a trail run at Afton. I’m so lucky to live in a state with such amazing parks.
